Many of us get swept up in the long summer days of lazing around and indulging ourselves. And what better time to treat yourself than in summer?

We all enjoy a nice and filling meal. And it gets bonus points if it is easy to prepare too! In summer, hosting or attending parties is a given and appetizers are the quintessential ‘feelgood’ food. But how do you prepare delicious and nutritional appetizers for families and friends that everyone will love?

Keeping your pantry and freezer stocked with whole-wheat couscous, cans of no-salt-added crushed tomatoes, spices, garlic, frozen chicken breasts, canned fish, and frozen vegetables can sometimes turn out to be a real life-saver. It is easy to put together a dashing appetizer if you have food already in your pantry. Look to buy non-perishable items like Martino’s couscous. Keep a note on the refrigerator to list items as you need them and know when it’s time to replenish your supplies.

Whether you’re a seasoned cook or a kitchen-phobe who doesn’t own a cookbook, you can make these easy summer appetizer recipes. They don’t take much time to prepare thanks to the use of Martino couscous products – 100% Italian and produced from bio wheat with light texture and great taste quality.

It is an ideal appetizer to serve with light summer cocktails or even sparkling wine. The best part of it? It can be ready in just 10 minutes

When we talk of summer appetizer recipes, we cannot pass tortillas! When it comes to Mexican food, many people love to sneak a taste of it at a party. And we have an interesting take on one of the most famous Mexican foods. Tortillas with couscous! Most people are only familiar with flour tortillas, however, today we are going to spice things up a little bit and bring you a delicious couscous tortilla recipe that you can serve with 4-5 different filling and have a fast recipe in your cookbook for those busy weekdays!

One of the best qualities of couscous is that it assumes the flavours of the sauces or seasonings you add. But if you opt for Martino’s Conventional Flavoured label – then you can choose from several varieties of pre-seasoned couscous to create a savoury meal.

What’s even more – Martino’s couscous products are pre-made, which means they take even less time to cook. At the same time, they have a high nutritional value with a single one-cup serving providing about 36 grams of carbohydrate or about 34 net carbs. You’ll also get a small boost of protein with the nutty-flavoured side dish and a few grams of fibre to boost your sense of satisfaction after eating. That makes for the ideal base for your summer appetizers!
